Champney Falls are named for Benjamin Champney, famous White Mountain Artist (1817-1907). The Falls are best seen in spring and early summer when the water is highest. Beautiful ice flows can be seen in winter. The trail begins at a parking lot on Route 112, about 10 miles west of Conway, and follows the easy grade of an old logging road along Champney Brook where a loop trail branches off to Champney and Pitcher Falls. The hike to the falls and back is about 3 miles, or continue on the more challenging trail to climb the north ridge of Mt. Chocorua.
